Growth improvement with finishing diets in seabream

During the project several lab trials have been performed. In one of the last trials, two groups of sebream with different nutritional history and different growth rates (one group fed high energy diet, HE, and the other one a low energy diet,LE) were fed with the finishing diet. It was observed that the LE group had reached the same final average body weight as the HE group, with a higher specific growth rate and better food conversion.
In the farm trials, fish fed finishing feed had equal or better growth than the fish fed farm feed; it has to be remarked that althouhg the amoung of crude protein in the feed was the same in both diets, the crude fat was 7% lower in the finishing diet.
